Hundreds of protesters took the streets in Paris on Saturday (December 15) in the fifth weekend of nationwide demonstrations against Emmanuel Macron's government, despite calls to hold off after a gun attack in Strasbourg earlier this week.
Police were out in force to contain possible outbursts of violence, although numbers were down compared to Saturday last week, a police source said.
Teargas was fired at small groups of protesters in brief clashes with riot police.
Five bare-breasted women dressed as Marianne, the symbol of the French republic, joined "yellow vest" protesters on Paris' Champs-Elysées.
Clad in red hooded capes with their bodies painted silver, the women came to support marchers at the sometimes violent demonstrations that have been shaking the country since November.
Yellow Vest protesters took to the streets of Paris on February 16 for the fourteenth consecutive Saturday since the protests began. This footage shows crowds along Place du Carrousel, near the Lourve..
